Credit Unions and Cybersecurity Dangers
According to an article by Theresa Payton in Credit Union National Association (CUNA), credit union leaders should be cautious regarding cybersecurity dangers.
►Take your digital security response planning to a whole new level. Ransomware is especially concerning today.
“This is like a hockey stick in my company right now,” Payton says. “We’ve helped customers recovery quickly because they had a plan in advance.”
She suggests practicing how to respond to a potential ransomware event, which often involves the loss of data.
“When you have a plan and practice it, the disaster will be a lot smaller and will be resolved faster,” Payton says. “It always takes 400% to 600% longer than anticipated to resolve these events because people don’t think through everything.”
